Question about Dacor Preference RSD30 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

My Dacor RSD30S range has the dreaded F1 problem. Formerly an intermittent event, it is now persistent and power has been turned off to stop the beeping. (The stove worked fine between F1 events.) Based on my reading here and elsewhere, it seems that I need to replace the control board. I don't have the foggiest idea how to access the control board, which I assume resides under the cooktop. Also, can you confirm the part number for the control board (range s/n FD6460002)? Thanks. Marc

Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.

F1 error code on Dacor RSD30S. Code comes on for no apparent reason, range not in use. Hitting cancel no longer resets range, I have to pull fuses to stop beeping.


Hello,

The F1 error code means that a button on the touchpad is stuck and sometimes it could be resolved by clearing the code by pushing the cancel button, having done that and it no longer clears that F1 code the touchpad would need to be replaced to keeping it from beeping nonstop.

The part number for that touchpad is 82063B it could be picked up at your local appliance parts store or online at;

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance.

My RSD30S Dacor Range is giving an F1 error code for a while now. What is the expected total cost of repair?


Hi

Error code F1 means that an error with the keypad has occurred. Usually it happens due to loose ribbon cable on the keypad or the electronic control assembly itself going bad. To resolve this issue first, disconnect the power to unit and then gain access to the back of the clock assembly (Electronic Range Control/ERC). Now unplug the touch pad ribbon connector from the ERC, it would be a flat wire approx. 1 1/2" to 2" wide and make sure that the cable is not broken and nothing is shorted on the keypad. After this is done insert the cable back and then plug the unit back to check. If the error is still there then the electronic control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Beeping with F1 on display


See if F1 stops momentarily after pushing cancel. If F1 returns you have a failed control (electronic clock). The board can be repaired at our shop, www.fixyourboard.com or you can purchase a new one.

Dacor RSD30 range has F1 failure can this be fixed? I had the same range before this one and had nothing but problems with F1


Hello Guest,
This is a typical symptom of a failure in the control board. We rebuild these controllers which makes for a much more cost effective repair than replacing the unit.

BEZEL CRACKING ON DACOR RSD30S


I have this problem and just called a parts store to find that a new bezel is $414.79! The screws were apparently loosening up slowly and by the time they were scratching the trim piece on the top of oven door (and I noticed it) the damage had been done. Has anyone been able to get Dacor to replace this part w/o charge? It isn't a case of misuse, but is a design flaw. Lindsey

Timer tone goes off with F1 display


Hi arl3933,

The "F1" error code description is a System Watchdog Circuit. Please press "CANCEL", if beeping continues after 30 seconds, please check the main control board(ERC). Here are basic test that will help you to determine if the ERC or touchpad is defective.

1. Unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker.

2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.

4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.

5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the code comes back.

7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
